Freshly Made Sketches #385

Hi there!

For this weeks Freshly Made Sketches #385, I wanted to make it bright!

I decided to go with the How Sweet It Is designer series paper and use the bright coloured stripy paper. I used this down the left hand side of the card, to go with the sketch.

For the sentiment, I used the “make a wish” from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and stamped it in melon mambo ink on a another piece of paper from the same paper pack which was actually part of a larger stripe but just one colour!

I added a doily strip to the bottom of the sentiment piece which was cut from some coastal cabana cardstock.

The image of the sweet jar was cut from one of the How Sweet It is papers and then mounted to the card with dimensionals to add some height to the card. The colours of the lollies in the jar co-ordinate with the stripes in the paper too!

Lastly I added some of the metallic sequins to the stripy paper as they have really nice iridescent colours.

This is the sketch for this week:
